Jogyesa is the chief temple of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism, becoming so in 1936. It thus plays a leading role in the current state of Seon Buddhism in South Korea. The temple was first established in 1395, at the dawn of the Joseon Dynasty; the modern temple was founded in 1910 and initially called "Gakhwangsa." The name was changed to "Taegosa" during the period of Japanese rule, and then to the present name in 1954.
This temple has a worth as its own and also good place to travel with Insa-dong, Cheonggye creek and Myeong-dong.
Beautiful temple in the center of Seoul, I liked the peaceful environment, the colors, I believe it is a must visit site when you go to Korea to learn about their culture. And of course it is free of charges.
Beauriful temple in center of city. Calm people to do prayer. Colorful lanterns.
Best Temple. Located in the city near Insadong. Flower festival on early November.
Very great temple located in the city and next to Insadong market. Even though it's not a big temple, but it's decoratedwith flowers beautifully especially in the period I visited (early November 2017).
